A Colorful Bomber Jacket + Tips For Wearing Statement Clothes

Outfit: brightly patterned jacket, striped top, black skirt, thick white belt, green hair, pork pie hat, red lipstick, black sneakers
Do not attempt to adjust your screens. This colorful bomber jacket is real and it is wonderful.

If my jacket looks familiar, it’s probably because you recently saw it in my last thrift haul video. It’s truly a work of art and I was very intimidated by it. How in the world does somebody wear something so colorful without looking like they just graduated from a clown college?

After putting a lot of thought into it, I finally came up with the perfect outfit inspiration while playing with sidewalk chalk, of all things. If anyone else is in need of help to pull off wild clothes, read on for my number one tip to turn you into a pro!

The easiest way to transition statement clothes into your closet is by pairing them with really, ridiculously simple basics.

It don’t matter if they’re black or white, just as long as it’s something plain that you feel comfortable in. By doing this, you’re letting the statement item take center stage of your outfit without feeling like you’re in a total costume.

To achieve this myself, I went with a striped top, a black skirt, and my favorite pork pie hat. I’m probably at the intermediate level of wearing wild clothes. My outfit is still neutral but I mixed in a few extra colors and patterns for interest and to show off my personal style.

I could easily see someone go even further with this jacket and come up with an outfit that resembles a rainbow explosion. But I’m not there yet.. it’s all about baby steps until you’re ready for something more daring.

Maybe the next time you see this jacket, I will have advanced to the next level and will be wearing it in a way that would give Lady Gaga a run for her money.

But until then, I dare you to wear something crazy from your closet. You only have to don it around your house for a wild Friday night in. Maybe you can catch up with a new Q&A video I posted on YouTube channel or participate in #NationalPizzaPartyDay? In any case, happy TGIF!

  • I think you did SO wonderful in styling that amazingly colorful jacket! It turned out to be such a cool outfit – it even looks like it’s straight from the 80s to me! <3

    • Oddly enough, the ’80s thing was unintentional. I just wanted to be colorful. lol Imagine that! Thanks, Lynds. <3
